Interview

Got interview through college career fair. the interview was several rounds, but they were all group interview which made things uncomfortable. there were 4-5 rounds that all the same group would go to. behavioral, one you had to make 5 min presentation about why you should be hired, final round they asked you to come back with a sheet filled out with a list of people you know who make over a certain amount of money each year who would want insurance. pretty sketchy

    About a one hour interview mostly consisting of questions about personality, strengths and weaknesses, and personal long-term goals. The interviewer was really nice and just wanted to see what kind of person I was. She also explained to me the results of the personality quiz I took prior to the interview and described how I would fit nicely into the position.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Miami, FL) in July 2016.

    Interview

    Lunch interview followed by two more interviews all within two weeks time. Second interview with human resources rep. Next with branch manager. Didn't like that they give you this stupid personality quiz worst method I've ever experienced. If they would've had a better method of getting to know there potential employees I would've been more interested. Other than that seemed like a decent company to work for.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Minneapolis, MN).

    Interview

    Many interviews with 5-7 people. They really can pull the wool over your eyes about how much money you can make if you are one of the top 10% quartile of sales people. It is good to meet with as many other advisors that are not the best of the best because they can tell you like it is. This is a great job for college interns, but not career changers.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual in June 2016.

    Interview

    I emailed my resume to one of the representatives, and 2 weeks later I received an email saying that they wanted to have a meeting for the upcoming week. I then had the interview with one of the recruiters. When I first arrived had to fill out a form asking for about 3-5 people that you know that would be interested in the company. Overall, it was an easygoing interview, the representative was very friendly and it was obvious that they wanted to get to know you. The interview lasted for about 30 minutes. About a week later they followed up with a call to schedule a meeting with one of the college representatives. If you set up an interview make sure that you have questions prepared.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Northwestern Mutual (Greenwood, IN) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Pretty straight forward. I actually felt like the interviewer was trying to learn about me. It didn't feel like I was being recruited. (Different than other experiences with the industry) I wanted the job, but by the end of the interview we came to a mutual decision that now probably wasn't the right time. I actually referred a colleague/friend of mine for the position. I'm looking forward to revisiting the opportunity in 6 months to a year.
